Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio became the first casualty of the season after losing his job a few days ago. He has managed to win just two matches during his six months after the club.
Strangely, there has been no great support for the man who has just lost his job. Former Blackburn and Newcastle United manager Sam Allardyce, though, has said that he feels Sunderland reacted too quickly to the current form of the club. He feels that Di Canio should have been given more time. Di Canio came into the club as the replacement for Martin O'Neill at the end of last season.
